I seriously like this thing. 5 different lengths and each produces a sharp tip.
I already forgot if it's 1 or 5 that makes the regular pencil angle; I very
quickly decided 3 is my favorite setting. Slightly shorter than normal, sharpens
fast, good for sketching.
I bought this sharpener because it CLOSES. I've been having trouble with pencil
shavings escaping inside my pencil bag – invariably finding their way into my
kneaded erasers (which I finally had to isolate in tiny jars). I saw this
sharpener and thought Huzzah!
A Note: Do please set it back to "close" after every time you use it! --->
I kept mine open on a setting for several days, when I went to close the little
plastic slot had trouble sliding all the way. I thought Oh no I've broken it!
It's loose and rattles and won't stay shut! BUT... after a day or so of sitting
in the closed position, it returned back to its normal snappy fully-closeable
self. Yay! And whew. :3 (The settings mechanism inside is plastic so it was
probably starting to bend under those days of stress. Take away the stress, and
it relaxes back into shape.)
